Incidentally, none of the airports in Bengaluru and Delhi were in the top 10 in the 2021 list. Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport again grabbed the 11th spot. Luis Felipe de Oliveira, director general (DG) of Airports Council International-ACI World, said in this context, Bangalore’s Kempegowda International Airport occupying 2 places in the world is quite promising. Along with this, Delhi Airport occupying the 7th place is quite an important event. Because, neither of these 2 airports were in the top 10 of 2021. In that respect, it is good news that these 2 airports have entered the top ten list.
